This lost art of woodworking is continually refined, blending timeless methods with the latest knowledge of wood behavior. For example every design must be carefully planned with the appropriate wood selection and cuts to account for variations in humidity that cause natural expansion and contraction of wood.

The Stack (tournament version)

I bought this board because I wanted a portable, higher quality wood board than what I use now. It's finish is excellent and it's easy to use assemble. I wish it had a border with coordinates and the suede holder covered all sides. Even so, A+

Sometimes a picture does not do something justice

And this is one of those cases. The pictures do not show the true elegance of this board. The satin finish combined with the set I bought are not really captured in the photos. I cannot tell you how happy I am with this purchase. Fit and finish are perfect! Bravo!!!

Superb chess board

I really love this chess board. It fits perfectly with my chess pieces. I am often playing chess with friend of mine at nearby coffee shop and usually not many people stop to watch. Got board few days ago and tried it. Dozen of people at coffee shop stopped to watch :)
If love to play chess just treat yourself with this board. It is worth every penny.

That's so wonderful! I'm thrilled that you are appreciating this board that I designed. It gets attention, doesn't it! Thank you so much for your review of it. - Raphael
Very nice board, part 2

Here are two pics of the board with the Fischer-Spassky commemorative set i mentioned in my other review. Sorry about the orientation.

Very nice board

I’m not easily impressed, but I was with this board. I got it mainly for the uniqueness factor and because I wanted to be able to store it in a book case, which the disassembled “stacked” size of 9x9 allows. Aside from the uniqueness of the break apart design, this thing is pretty much perfect. At first I thought it had an alignment issue, but it turned out the problem was with my table! Highly recommended in the 2.25” square tournament edition, and it makes a perfect pairing with the Fischer-Spassky commemorative set in golden rosewood and natural boxwood with a 3.75” king that I purchased elsewhere. Those piece colors complement the colors of the board squares nicely.
